are there any specifics to look into when purchasing 16gb ram for x230 for best performance?

X200, X201, X220 (including equivalent tablet models) and X300, X301 series specific matters only.

I'm not sure exactly what the specifics are but I can give you the information for mine. I have mushkin 16 GB ddr3. It's just over $100 through Newegg. The only caveat to me telling you this is that I bought my x230t with this pre installed so I do not know if there are any bios modifications required to make it work but from everything I ever read on ThinkPad upgrade pages it should just plug and play.

Just do NOT go for any so-called "Value" RAM versions, they are 2nd or even 3rd choice.
Over the years I have used many brands without problems, such as Samsung, Micron, Axiom, Hynix, Kingston, etc.
